THE University of Stirling’s renowned Institute of Aquaculture has unveiled a new management team to take the leading research and teaching centre forward.
The team is led by newly appointed interim director Professor Malcolm MacLeod, deputy principal (Operational Strategy and External Affairs). He is backed up by deputy director, Professor Herve Migaud.
The executive committee also comprises Professor Brett Glencross, director of Research, Dr Darren Green, director of Learning and Teaching, and James Dick, director of Facilities.
Institute of Aquaculture director Professor MacLeod said: ‘This new team brings together an impressive mix of cutting edge skills and valued experience in the sector which will help us advance our ambitious vision for the institute.
‘Tasked with developing a new strategy which continues to champion pioneering research and teaching in aquaculture, and takes an outward looking, international approach to operations, we look forward to an exciting period of growth.’
The team will now oversee development of new state-of-the-art fish and laboratory facilities to support the world leading research carried out on campus.
‘We will continue to forge and maintain strong relationships with industry and develop strategic partnerships with research institutes across the globe in order to build on our existing success,’ said Professor MacLeod.
The institute management team will attend the European Aquaculture Society conference at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) from September 20—23, at Stands 15 and 16.
